      Anyone aware of any more in depth tutorials or masterclass type setups on offer for exploring that Ivy Lab side of halftime?
      It seems to be a struggle to find anything significant to begin to build on. I’m aware Halogenix has said Dilla beats and grooves are vital, but that’s the extent of professional knowledge I’ve seen.

      Not a tutorial, but the most recent Back To Back podcast (https://soundcloud.com/backtobackpod), the guests are The Glitch Mob, and they mention several artists that you could check out. A lot of U.S. people revolve around The Lowend Theory party, so practically anyone from Team Supreme (Mr. Carmack, who Ivy Lab name check a lot, Tsuruda), EPROM (who works with Alix Perez as SHADES)

      Here’s some videos I found. Have not checked them myself yet, but went with artist names I knew:

      UA Artist Tips & Tricks – The Glitch Mob
      * this one might be real good for a fundamental glitch beat

      How I Play: EPROM Interview + Live Setup Walkthrough

      Ivy Lab – DJsounds Show 2016
      * interview at the beginning of the video

      Rhythm Roulette: Mr. Carmack | Mass Appeal
      * not exactly a tutorial, but maybe some workflow ideas

      Kehlani x Mr Carmack – #songsfromscratch
      * not really a tutorial, but might give some inspiration & ideas

      Kenny Segal: Afternoon Hangs
      * one of the Team Supreme guys, kind of a peak of his approach

      Team Supreme: Strength in Numbers
      * more of a short doc

      Myself, I like some of the half-time stuff, and have started doing the Team Supreme cyphers as an exercise of sorts. You basically get a spec/writing prompt, a set BPM for that session, a due date (usually 3~7 days), a theme and/or some samples, which you usually have to use at least 2 or 3 of in your beat, and the beat has to be 1 minute +/- 15 seconds. Haven’t made it on to any mixes, but it’s definitely a fun challenge to get it done.

        This was the most recent cypher, beats were due two nights ago: https://twitter.com/beatteamsupreme/status/991333973442740224

        They announce them on Twitter and their FB page. Here’s the beat I threw together, might turn it in to a full track:

        The previous cypher was a Street Fighter II theme, I did this:

      BTW maybe we should start a monthly exercise, call it something like Lamp Sessions, curator gives three samples (get it, genies, wishes…) & a spec? Rotate the curator each month, maybe have them put their favorite submissions together as a 15-20 minute mix.

        Cool idea…
        maybe using home made samples too might be a good way to get sharing some other content? If you wanted to put together a new thread for this and see if anybody wants to start sharing samples they’ve made could be fun / useful, as well as the idea of using samples from the packs ? 🙂

        Sounds good. Give me a week or two to brainstorm, and I’ll get something together, see if other members want to take a stab at it. Got a couple ideas already. A member built sample library would be fun too.

      And +100000 on member sample library

      +

      would be rad to do a preset library.

      I’ve got some fresh rippin serum presets that I would love to share.

      A member submition sample library would be amazing. I’d happily throw my libraries over to this community.

      Hey guys! Has this thing of the samples become real?
